Cherished Family Memories | CSI DT

Check out Case File 285 at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration…. I wish that this room was in my home… Trouble is it won’t be as neat all the time!

The colours are awesome… I used deep navy, bright yellow, light grey, black and white. Here’s my piece:

I decided to use a dark background – as is the case of the dark wall in the inspiration image as well. I also wanted my yellow elements to be super bright (as in the image), but just a pop here and a pop there. I loved the geometric style design on that one pillow, so I added some geometric elements to my layers. I also couldn’t take my eyes off the little basket under the table with the chevron design – and was pleased to find some 2Crafty chipboard that matches that design, absolutely spot on. I also added lots of stripey paper to echo the rug and I used the beautiful 2Crafty title chippie to document a weekend that truly was a Cherished Family Memory!

My journaling / story comes from a ‘June Prompt’ – namely, “What Fills You”. Well, I live for family time – whether we are out and about for the day, for an hour or for a weekend – OR whether we are simply lounging around at home watching movies or cooking a delicious meal together as a family. I love the chats and the laughter and the joking and even the more serious conversations. It all allows me to touch base again with everyone after a usually crazy-busy week. It’s like a recharge for all of us and it fills me up knowing that we always know what’s happening in each others’ lives and not living like ships in the night.

And here are some close ups:
